AS220 Main Gallery

About AS220

In light of AS220’s founding mission to provide an uncensored, unjuried, all-ages forum for artists, we extend the opportunity to exhibit original creative work in our galleries to every resident of Rhode Island. To support our mission, AS220’s Galleries and Performance Space are partially subsidized by proceeds from our restaurant, Foo(d), and The Bar at AS220.

In the course of a year, over 150 artists participate in the monthly exhibits at AS220’s rotating galleries. There is always work on display at the Main Gallery and Open Window on the ground floor of 115 Empire Street, at the Youth Gallery on Empire Street’s 2nd floor, and at the Project Space Gallery and Reading Room, on the first floor of AS220’s Dreyfus building at 93 Mathewson Street.

In 2011, the year-round artists-in-residence of AS220’s three buildings established a Resident Gallery in the Mercantile Block foyer and now organize bi-monthly exhibits in the space. In addition to free public opening receptions on the first Saturday of the month, the AS220 Galleries host free monthly artist talks by exhibiting artists.
